Update on Guatemalan Adoption

For those of you who were interested in Amy Slack’s efforts to bring her adopted daughter, Lilly, home from Guatemala, we have good news to share.

Lilly visaThis past week, Amy traveled to Guatemala, completed paperwork and acquired a Visa for Lilly. From the looks of their Facebook photos, both are ecstatic to be united. Lilly will soon start settling into the Slacks’ home in New Jersey.

In case you missed the blog posts in June (or need a refresher), here are links to our three-part story of Amy and Lilly’s amazing, heart-wrenching journey towards each other:





Feel free to leave your good wishes for Amy and Lilly in the comments section below.

  1. “Assyria will not save us, We will not ride on horses; Nor will we say again, Our god,’ To the work of our hands; For in You the orphan finds mercy.”
    –Hosea 14:3

    “He executes justice for the orphan and the widow, and shows His love for the alien by giving him food and clothing.”
    –Deuteronomy 10:18

    Mama & Daddy are doing the work of the Almighty. A beautiful Breath of Life where government has failed.

    “He that gives unto the poor lends unto YHWH, and He will give him his reward.”
    –Proverbs 19:17

  2. I am happy for everyone concerned. I pray for the unfortunate child banished from their mother’s arms, jettisoned into oblivion for reasons unknown. Their life’s trajectory is forever altered, and as curiously mysterious as Moses in the bulrushes. I pray for the many safe haven providers, social workers, foster parents, adopted parents and others who sacrifice their own lives to help others in desperate need of assistance.
